Bar Chart lablels

I have a BarChart with several hundred bars. The problem is that the three-digit numeric
labels on the X-axis are so close together that they overlap and are unreadable. Is there a way to:

1. Make the three digits in each label appear one above the other instead of horizontally adjacent?
2. Make one-fifth (say) of the labels appear and suppress the rest?
3. Turn the whole thing 90 degrees CW so the bars stick out to the right, in which case the labels
would be horizontal and not overlap?

None of the books I have cover this. Thank you for any tips. The group's answers have been
extremely valuable in the past!
